I haven't heard of anybody being murdered at Abu Ghraib.

Who said murdered?  No one was murdered at Chappaquiddick either.  I said deaths

everytime i come to this site now there is another page added to this thread...you know i am gonna make a few pages also when i get them game tomorrow

i heard there is 240 Riddler trophies scattered about

so,do you think its worth getting the guide for this?..i like guides for games,but for games like this i use them at a minimum,but 240 Trophies scattered about,and i want them all..so i am undecided

I would say yes - mostly for the maps.  That is the one thing I find lacking in my 2 hours of gameplay.  A couple times I just got turned around and the in game map is pretty sparse.

No it isn't classy but Pelosi isn't classy.  There is a reason people talk about Kennedy being a different kind of politician than we see today.

Too stupid because it is wrong.  I have read stories of at least 2-5 deaths in Abu Ghraib (and that was a long time ago) but only one person died in Kennedy's car.

A socialist system would mean anybody could get care for anything (at almost) anytime. For free.

I don't think I get this.  Like Capitalism doesn't use other people's money?

So true.  Of course that doesn't mean it isn't better.  Just that it isn't free.

Chocolate was pretty bad.  They seemed to think people wanted a story so a lot of the film is story which is dumb (both the story and thinking people wanted a story)  The fights are fun but you can probably watch them on Youtube or somewhere and not be burdened with some really bad acting and a really dumb story.

Awesome video.

That's exactly how these people should be treated. They're not here to discuss, they're here to derail discussion and make thoughtful consideration impossible.

And I dont believe for a second you are trying to think anything through, its not a big government plan so it automatically fails for you.

Dude, if you don't that is fine, but then there isn't much of a conversation going on.  I tried.  When you think about how no one here gives you a fair shake please remember I tried.

Do you know such things about any other important service you buy in your life?    No you dont, so why should health care be different?   It just seems to be another in the endless series of excuses given when anything other then massive governmental intervention is the plan for doing anything about health care issues.

Yes.  I certainly check the reputation of mechanics before car work, I demand references of contractors so I can see how satisfied others have been with their work.  I check the ratings on TVs, cars, and almost all electronics before making a purchase. 

You seem to be suggesting that I check the cost of a particular doctor but nothing else!  That makes no sense.  Anyone would prefer to go to a doctor who say successfully removes a tumor 90% of the time rather than one who only gets is 45% - even if the 90% person costs a lot more!

Cost is just one of many factors when considering health care - you can't start forcing people to check prices but then say "oh you can't know about anything else!"



What I really find funny is that I am genuinely trying to think through your suggestion and what it would mean - and you get annoyed because of around 3 questions!  Yet you are bitching that Obama can't answer every single question from every person all the time!

The amount you pay for something has absolutely no bearing on how good the quality of service is.   You have no idea right now if you are going to a good or bad Dr right now when you get medical care do you?

Which will bring up another new wrinkle.  I will expect to know now.  If we adopt your plan I will want success rates, rates adverse outcomes, etc.  I will also expect that someone - i.e. the government - will make sure doctors report regularly and don't lie.

Ive seen a couple companies that have a really interesting plan that this would feed into, its basically a high deductable health insurance combined with the company funding a health savings account or something similar, which can be used against that deductable, and if you dont use it up it can be rolled over from year to year.    This would still limit out of pocket expenses while at the same time giving people an incentive to try and lower their health care costs.

Where the comparing costs would work best might be something like this....   You have a yearly physical coming up, by knowing what is charged you see Dr A charges $500, Dr B charges $550, but Dr C only charges $400 so you would hopefully go to the Dr that would get you the best value for your health care spending.

When one never sees a bill for anything, of course there is no incentive to save, and it will be exactly the same in a governmental run plan.   You have to somehow connect with people what they are actually spending on their health care.    Maybe then people would more embrace preventive care and other lower cost ways to do health care.

That seems good but it does assume that all medical care is the same quality.  What if good doctors charge $550 but the shitty ones charge $400.  Are you going to go to a shitty doctor?  Are you going to trust the advice of a "discount" doctor when they say you have to get your nuts cut off because of a lump?  smile

The vast majority of care and tests run are not emergency care related.

That changes nothing.

How does it change nothing?   If the care isnt emergency related and you dont need it right this second, what would be the problem with what I said about prices for things being avaliable so you can know what you will be spending and have the abililty to price shop just like you do for almost anything else in life.    It doesnt hurt anything to have that information avaliable and could help cut costs.

From my perspective it changes nothing because I still don't have the medical knowledge to know if a test is really needed.  Sure I can shop around for the cheapest MRI but I have no clue if I really need an MRI at all. 

And see my post above to talk over how it will help cut costs.  I am still not sure how that will work.

I dont know the exact figures, I dont think anyone does, but it is without question an area for billions in savings that would not in any way reduce the quality of care for the patients.   I would love to see an open market where costs of tests and procedures are posted by every Dr, and a person could actually price shop for their care if they wanted to take the time to do so.   But when you never see the real bill for the costs of the tests, you have no incentive to question the tests the dr is running or how much the tests cost.

Ok, I like this idea but I am confused.  Right now my insurance company pays for the test so I don't have much incentive to check out competing costs.  So how are you going to make me want to check.  Am I going to be paying?  So you want to get rid of private insurance altogether?  Or will my insurance charge me the difference between the cheaper test across town and the test I bought?

I think one of the issues here is that there is no compelling reason for manned missions either from a research standpoint or a nationalistic, ego-boosting one.  I'm all for space exploration and discovery, but I'm not convinced that there's currently a need for manned missions and Joe Blow Public doesn't even care.

Joe Blow Public doesn't NEED to care. Do they care about Farm Subsidies or any of the other minutia that our government routinely spends money on? Beyond the scientific needs don't you think that with the changes we're doing on our planet alone dictate branching out into the solar system? With the technology we have there is no reason for us to not be a 2 planet species within the next 50 years and I think there is excitement to be cultivated among the public.

As someone who I thought was against government frivious spending I am suprised you are in favor of this.  Is it just because you find it cool or is their another reason?
